About Qandeel Baloch
Qandeel was one of the country’s first social media stars, getting her fame from her viral videos on her Facebook page. Qandeel had even auditioned at Pakistan Idol’s first season, but was taken out by Bushra Ansari after Qandeel was crying, which was either an antic or could be real.
Qandeel had specially gotten extra attention after her video with Mufti Qavi, where she was posing while wearing the clerics cap. This also got her under fire from various religious groups and was threatened multiple times, but Qandeel stood up and said she would show the real face of the cleric.
On July 16, 2016, Qandeel Baloch was found suffocated to death in bed, in her family home back in Multan. A district and sessions court in Multan is hearing the murder case of the celebrity.
